About the Campaign
Coco was living with her family that had two other dogs. The landlord told the family they have 72 hours to get rid of the dogs. The family was having a hard time relocated Coco due to her age and eye condition. Anita tried to find another family to take Coco but she ended up taking care of Coco.
In November of 2018, Coco had x-rays taken that showed her heart was enlarged. At first the vet wasn’t 100% sure it was congestive heart failure but after her second exam the doctor confirmed congestive heart failure.
Coco is on three medicines for her heart condition and one medicine for her eye condition. Anita has to routinely wash her eyes and put in prescription eye cream. Anita and her family are on a fixed income and already pay for Coco’s monthly medicine. The doctor wants Coco to have an echocardiogram to further exam her heart. VCA states the following on why you need testing done, “Accurate diagnosis gives us a much better guide to the type and extent of treatment necessary. Today there is a wide selection of heart medications that can be used to treat congestive heart failure and treatment regimes must be tailored for each patient. Without these tests, your veterinarian is unable to determine the optimal treatment for your pet, and may inadvertently cause more harm than good. With proper treatment, many dogs are able to live a normal life for many months to years.”
